The creators of 'Game of Thrones' are making a series of 'Star Wars' movies

Lucasfilm and Disney have just announced that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, creators of Game of Thrones, will write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, and holy shit YES.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement:

David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today. Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.


These new Star Wars films will be separate from both the iconic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of last year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
